About India Data Portal
The “India Data Portal” is a one-stop open-access portal for journalists to access, interact with, and visualize information, data and knowledge related to agriculture and financial inclusion, while also aiding other beneficiaries – researchers, students, policymakers, administrators, NGOs, and entrepreneurs. The portal contains a data repository with processed and documented public datasets on related themes. For agriculture, these include crops, water, livestock, public investments, etc at levels such as districts, tehsils, and villages with a largely rural focus and socio-economic characteristics in both rural and urban areas at granular spatial scales like district, town and ward spanning the entire country.
The repository for visualization includes an exhaustive collection of public datasets with overlapping as well as independent well-established remote-sensing and satellite products. In the case of agriculture, these include soil profiles, irrigated area, daily rainfall, elevation, forest cover, etc. Additionally, a rich set of published papers, articles, case studies and policy briefs will be provided in later phases to provide place-based context and the richness associated with observed patterns in the data.
To allow journalists to use the data portal, Indian School of Business (ISB) will provide training support in the form of in-class, online, and hybrid modules in multiple languages to ensure that the portal is used by the target beneficiaries. The data portal also has mechanisms for consultation and feedback from journalists to update and improve the portal.
